    So true.
    The abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.
    Please do not PM me for support. You will NOT get a reply. Post in the relevant forum section.

    that's a great article. very much agree with it. for gaming at 1080p, anything above 670 is waste. one thing i want to say about ssd that, it is better to buy a slightly larger size ssd rather than just 120/128 gb, cause game loading improves greatly if installed on ssd. and if you play a lot of games then soon you will run out of space as recent games are huge (20gb is becoming a standard). gaming at 1440p or above require really good cpu and gpu combination.
